I bought a pair of red cowgirl boots at a thrift store. I was originally going to make a planter out of one, and a wine cooler out of the other. Then I thought, two wine coolers, and use one as a hostess gift for a horsey event I'm attending. THEN, I thought, a very unique western style aroma diffuser.....THEN...needless to say, there are only two boots and so many ideas.
But, I bought some leather belts at the thrift store to make handles for the wine cooler if that's what I decide to do. And some foot tree things to keep the front of the boot shaped no matter what I do with the shaft.
I'm going to let the ideas ferment, and on New Year's Day I will create something with my leather boots. In fact, New Year's day is going to be all about creating, that's how I want to spend it-not avoiding cleaning or chores or whatever, just creating and playing with my dogs. Happy New Year to Me!
